  1. 字取り機能の改善リクエスト (improvement to "jidori" feature request)

    日本語版独自の「字取り」機能で設定できるのは「文字数」に限られているため、不便な場面が多いです。
    文字数以外の設定はテキストフレーム/フレームグリッドに関わらずフレームグリッド設定に依存します。これを知らずに「字取り」を使いこなせていないユーザーも多いです。

    添付画像 1 に示したのは、私が不便だと感じたケースの全てです。そして( )の中には私の仕事での主な使い道です。
    本文とはサイズの異なる文字(見出し段落に字取りを用いる場合が多い)
    字間の広げられたフレームでの挙動(おまけ)
    ストーリー内に配置された、文字サイズの異なる表(一般に表の文字サイズは本文より小さい場合が多い)

    私はこれらの問題を、アンカー付きオブジェクトを挿入、
    あるいは「字取り」を用いずに、
    ホワイトスペースを挿入、トラッキングで調節、文字前後のアキ設定
    などで代用しています。
    つまり、とても不便なのです。

    今回、代案を考えてみました。なかなかの時間をかけました。
    皆さんの賛同が欲しいです。

    添付画像 2 は文字パネルのスクリーンショットです。
    従来のグラフィカルなコントロールを廃止し、フライアウトメニューに格納することで、より詳細な設定を可能にすることを提案します。
    これは「縦中横」や「割注」、あるいは「下線」や「打ち消し線」と同様に扱うこととします。

    添付画像 3 は設定ダイアログのアイディアです。
    まず先頭に、他の機能と同じようなチェックボックス。
    これで「字取り」をオン/オフします。
    次に、ラジオボタンで
    1 文字サイズ、字数、字間 の3要素で設定、
    2 字取りの幅(縦組み時は高さ)をダイレクトに設定
    を選択します。

    いかがでしょうか。

    少しの難点は、下位バージョンのアプリと互換性が全くないことです。
    しかし、いいと思いませんか?

    jidori feature improvement request

    The "Jidori" function unique to the Japanese version can only be set to "character count," which is inconvenient in many situations.
    Settings other than the number of characters depend on the frame grid settings regardless of the text frame/frame grid. Many users are unaware of this and are not able to use the "Jidori" function well.

  2. Need to View and Edit Alt Text in InCopy

    As an editor I need to be able to preview Alt text for Images and also edit that Alt Text if needed. Currently I need to go to Indesign to do that.

  3. Directly create transparency on letters/words in a text frame

    Currently it is not possible to define a letter or words within a text frame with a certain percentage of transparency. It is only possible to adjust the Tint. In the Effects Panel, the Transparency options are greyed out (not accessible).

    Sometimes in a design you want to create such text effects, which at the moment can only be achieved with a workaround: an anchored text frame which poses several challenges if the transparent text runs over several lines.

    Affinity Publisher offers this right out of the box in the current version (2.3.1). Quark Xpress can do this as well.…

  5. InDesign Cannot Set Actual Text (Accessibility)

    InDesign Cannot Set Actual Text

    InDesign has no way of setting actual text. This can only be done in PDF. Actual text is set when acronyms are used. Access technologies such as screen readers cannot properly read acronyms such as USA. They voice them as words, like "Youusah." Actual text has to be set for the document to be read correctly. This is a painstaking process that requires InDesign users to learn PDF Remediation, a highly specialized skillset that is typically outside the role of the average Graphic Designer. Currently, the process for setting actual text in Acrobat is as…

  6. TOC - Update page numbers only

    Update page numbers only in TOC (like it is possible in a common Text Processing software) would save a lot of time, as we often insert styling and manual line warps in the TOC for aestetical reasons and have to redo it as TOC has to be refreshed and overwrites everything.

    The suggestion in this forum to create Cross-References would also be a nice solution to this problem.

  8. Highlight Box Behind Text

    This is so commonly used in design, that it even exists in Adobe Express, yet for some reason has never been introduced to InDesign. Instead we have had to create underlines and adjust them, which then needs to be adjusted every time font size is changed.

    I imagine this is not a difficult thing to introduce, and it would be a huge help to so many people within publication design

  9. Paragraph style — Bullets Same as text Color option

    When creating a bullet style in paragraph styles, could there be an option to have the bullet character the same color as the text color?

    Similar to the paragraph rule options.

    I know create character styles for this, and it is still a good feature, but you need to create multiple bullet styles if your page has a dark background.

    I hope my explanation makes sense.

  10. Different layers for each page in a document

    Each page in a document can have different layers. When producing artwork for personalised print items (like mailers) it would be good for each version (page) to have it's own variable layers to avoid having lots of layers that could lead to data being omitted if layer turned off

  11. DATA MERGE

    Importing an image via .CSV or .TXT file requires the use of an absolute @IMAGE link, it would be very convenient, for file sharing purposes, for this link to recall the files from the folder where the INDESING file resides, using a relative @IMAGE link, using a relative @IMAGE link.

    EXAMBLE:

    Volumes:BK2:PACK HD:CLIENT:PROJECT 1:PACK:LINK:file.ai (ABSOLUTE LINK)

    LINK/file.ai (RELATIVE LINK)

  12. apply height or width to several image frames at once

    Sometimes I need to make a slight adjustment in size to several images in a piece, and they all need to be the same size. If there was a way to select them all and then type in the height/width to apply to each selected item rather than all of them as a whole, that would save a lot of time of having to select and size each one separately.

  13. Improve Conversion of Adobe Illustrator Documents Into InDesign Documents

    It is a sad, sad day when you realize you built an entire library of corporate charts in the wrong Adobe app. And an even sadder day when you realize that converting Adobe Illustrator files into Adobe InDesign files is not straightforward. You will now spend hours creating text boxes, with copy-pasta-weary fingers... If only converting illustrator text to indesign text were easier... Alas, my fate is bound. Woe is me. I shall make a weak cry out for help to Adobe developers before I continue my trudging along in my pitiful sorrow.

  14. "Create Outlines" should automatically "convert bullets and numbering to text" first.

    Currently you have to remember to select "Convert bullets and numbering to text" before you also select "Create Outlines." This should not be a two part process as there would never be a time when a designer would suddenly want the bullets and numbers to disappear when making outlined text for a printer.

  15. Lyft background check?

    It is an honor to be able to join the Lyft driver community, which sounds like one exciting environment. I am currently in the course of getting through the application steps. As I go through all the steps, I have thought about the thoroughness of Lyft with respect to what it looks for in a background check. While doing some research, I stumbled across this informative article (https://consumerattorneys.com/article/what-does-lyft-look-for-in-a-background-check), shedding light on the subject. I am very sure that your collective wisdom can provide more details.

    Just for those of you who have firsthand experience in driving for Lyft…

  16. Align Panel

    The Align panel has the options to align to the selection, page, margin, key object and spread. You have to click on the icon to open a drop down and choose which one. There is plenty of empty space. I attached a mockup of the way it is now vs. how it should be. As someone thats constantly aligning things to pages and then selection, quick changing would be greatly appreciated!

  17. article

    I never knew there was so much to consider with bre.ast augmentation until I read Partington Plastic Surgery’s article https://partingtonps.com/everything-you-need-to-know-about-gummy-bear-******-augmentation/ on gummy bear implants. The information about their unique composition and benefits, like a natural feel and reduced risk of rupture, was fascinating. This article has given me a lot to think about, and I feel more informed about my options now.

  19. AI-powered design assistance

    To improve Adobe InDesign for <a href="https://www.cubix.co/mobile-app-development"> mobile app development </a> design, we could integrate AI-powered design assistance that suggests layout enhancements, color schemes, and typography adjustments in real-time, tailored specifically for mobile interfaces. Additionally, introducing robust real-time collaborative editing features would allow multiple designers and developers to work on the same project simultaneously with version control and live feedback options. Moreover, developing an advanced asset management system with cloud integration, AI-driven tagging, and easy retrieval of graphics, fonts, and templates would streamline the mobile app design process significantly.

  20. Indesign CJK Version Request : Standard Vertical Roman Alignment

    Please add the simple feature of standard vertical roman alignment in adobe indesign CJK version as well.

    In all the other versions of Indesign, and also in other basic applications like the photoshop or illustrator, there is an option to vertically align roman alphabets. However, in the CJK version, the vertical writing tool only provides the option to typeset the roman alphabets and numbers in a 90 degree rotated way.

    If I wanted to write them vertically without having to rotate it, I have to manually do so in Character settings, but that is not a good option since the…
